Nazi outfit on sale in Japanese store

    Japanese shoppers can no longer buy a “joke” Nazi costume after mangers at the country’s Don Quijote chain withdrew the outfit in response to complaints.

    Until recently the costume - a black jacket with an armband featuring a red swastika – was on shelves at the discount stores next to outfits for dressing up as Michael Jackson or as a ninja.

    The Nazi costume was on sale for £8 and came in a package with "Heil Hitler" written on it in Japanese and a drawing of a person resembling Adolf Hitler.

    After Don Quijote received a letter of protest from the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, the chain announced the product would no longer be stocked.

    However the costume is made by a company called Aico, who have not said whether they would stop making it.

    An Aico spokesman said: "This was meant purely as a joke, as something that would easily be recognisable.

    “If we have complaints we will certainly stop sales.”

    In September a Turkish supermarket chain owned by the retailer Tesco said they would withdraw a Nazi helmet on sale for just £8.50.
